    The Red Sox will be looking for a new Manager at the end of 2013 when they realize their pitching coach cannot manage his way out of the bull pen.

    Oh, and Cherrington, nice job axing Scutaro last year and bringing in Avilles. Scutarro just won the MVP in the NLCS and you shipped Avilles to Tporonto for Farell – Avilles had the lowest OBP in the entire Major leagues... great talent sourcing Ben ...... NOT

    Oh noooo....how ever will the world go on now? This is such a horrible, devastating blow to society! I can totally understand how this story should be on CNN's front page, this is worse than anything else that is happening out there. Sports are such an important facet of life! I certainly hope this fellow doesn't lose too many paychecks....I mean he wouldn't want to have to live like the rest of us where working means putting actual effort into life. This is such a sad day....I....I....I need to lay down.

    Nice move, trade for a manager, give him a four year deal I think and then dump him.
